5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover :)

I am 5’3”, 142 lbs, married and mother of a teenage boy. I’ve been on the heavy side throughout my life. I was 174 when I got pregnant and went to 225. Afterwards I’ve been between 180-200. I was able to stick to my plan of losing the weight which took me about 2 years going down to 135 – weight watchers. Within 5 years gained 25 back and then last October...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

45 Years Old, Scared but Wanted to Do This my Whole Life - New York, NY

Dr. Roland was referred to me by my OB/GYN who I trust to the moon and back. From my first consultation with Dr. Roland I was put at ease. He told me this would not be painful. He told me he's never in his experience had anything dangerously bad happen with anesthesia/surgery. From beginning to end, there was ZERO pain and ZERO drama. No hidden charges from anesthesiologists or the surgical facility. At the absolute worst, this felt like a bad sunburn. I felt great taking the pills he gave me, watching Netflix and eating rum raisin ice cream. It was so easy. I still can't get over how easy. Dr. Roland was honest with me about the size he felt he'd be able to achieve and while I'm only 4 weeks post-op and still slightly swollen, I am exactly where he said I'd be. A few tiny areas need his attention as they're being slow-pokes on healing but again never a moment of pain, never an additional charge for a visit. He's straightforward, caring, easy to get ahold of (Oh, I forgot to mention that I left the surgery with his cell phone number. When do doctor's ever provide you with that???) This procedure was a pleasure. I wish I had done it sooner and I urge you to call Dr. Roland if you're considering a breast reduction or any other plastic surgery procedure for that matter. Best experience.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

25 Y/o Married with 18 Month Old and Too Much Belly - New York, NY

Dr. Roland performed a Tummy Tuck with liposuction of my lower flanks and fat transfer to my butt. He rescheduled my original surgery date when he found out I was still nursing. Why? My hormones were all over the place and he needed my body to go back to normal (pre pregnancy body) in order for him to work with my body better for the best results. Another Doctor would have cared less. I spent the whole 2 weeks before my surgery freaking out. The morning of I was a total mess. My lovely plastic surgeon walked in, hugged my mom and I and was in such a great mood. He asked if I was ready and of course I answered NO!! He laughed and said I'll be fine followed by "so you're getting breast implants right" perfect time to make a run for it - but I just froze in place. He laughed again and told me he was kidding. He said "relax, you picked the right guy." I did pick the right guy. His work is amazing and very natural. I returned to work looking great but no one can tell I just had surgery - I don't have that obvious guitar body many surgeons give their patients. (no offense to anyone) Looking like I had plastic surgery was not an option and Dr. Roland did an excellent job. His office staff are courteous and very helpful. His entire surgical team were amazing. His anesthesiologist was very informative and made me feel very comfortable. The Nurse who stayed by me from start to finish had my mom and my husband at ease by informing them about my progress every so often. She also was very caring in making sure I was comfortable and helped me into the car. I am proud of my results. I opted for a tt because everyone kept asking me if I was expecting my 2nd child... Now all they say is wow you look so great tell me the secret... My secret is Dr. Roland.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

30 years old and Much Needed Breast Implant - New York, NY

Since I was in High School I always wanted to get my breast done do to my self-esteem issue I had. Once I entered college I saved my money to get my breast done. Towards the end of my college career I did research on a good doctor in which I came across Dr. Donald Roland. He was the first doctor I actually came across, I was scared at first but when I came in for a consultation I felt at ease...

Deflated Saline Implant - New York, NY

I am so greatful for Dr Roland. After experiencing a ruptured saline breast implant I made a consultation appointment at his office location 52 East 72nd Street. I wanted to remove the implants, and he addressed my concerns and put me at ease. Everything we discussed happened exactly as he said. I feel so much better about my appearance. Thank you Dr Roland and thank you to his office staff I can only say great things about them all.

He is simply amazing. From his bedside manner to his technique. I would recommend him to my closest family members and friends with the utmost confidence that they too, will have the best results!

5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant

Great !!! - New York, NY

He preformed a chin implant and chin lipo. You have to be very patient with the swelling. You have 6-9 months to heal and your results show slowly but at the end you will look fabolous!! Dr. Roland also does excellant Botox.
